What Movies Do You Want to See Before the Oscars?

I take the Oscars seriously, and like to see, at least, all of the Best Picture nominees before the Oscars.  But with my novel, LIE, coming out this past fall as well as teaching, writing,  and well, life, I haven't been going to the movies as much as in the past.  I am going to channel Roger Ebert, brilliant critic and a dear man, and give a thumbs up/down to the movies I have seen and ask the internet's advice:

Moneyball  - Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill     Thumbs Up!!

Hugo           -Scorsese's sentimental homage to the movies and movie restoration -
           Wonderful for children ages 6 and above and their parents!! Saw this 
                    with my 6 year old! Thumbs up from both of us!!

The Descendants
                    -George Clooney cries -- set in Hawaii --   Thumbs up!!

Movies I must see in the next few weeks-- but don't have time to see!  Which one is a must see -- The Help (read book, loved it!), Midnight in Paris  (don't know how I haven't seen this Woody Allen film),  or Girl with a Dragon Tattoo  (devoured all the books).   I would love to see The Artist -- but I'm afraid I'm going to get someone seated behind me hissing, 'I can't hear what they're saying?  What are they saying, Arnie?'  i.e. The Artist is a homage to silent pictures!! 

What is the must-see movie before Oscars??

Or, do I just go see The Grey directed by talented Joe Carnahan starring Liam Neeson  (anyone out there remember: Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane premiere in Sacramento -- I was there at the door!!)

So many movies, so little time!!
